The countdown to Christmas has began, and I have done my Christmas shopping with ten days to spare! I thoroughly enjoy buying gifts for people, but, the crowds and weather are enough to put me off shopping for awhile (well, until the new year). I did manage to buy a 'stocking filler' present for a few, as I could not resist these Alphabet Ampersand scented candles. The packaging is elegant and plush in a monochrome and gold design. These candles would make a truly, lovely addition to any home.
In Marks and Spencer, it's 3 for 2 on many items. This deal gets me every time. So I went ahead and purchased three for £12 - not bad, right?
The fragrance is uplifting and revitalising with bright zesty grapefruit and fresh invigorating ginger. It is a strong citrus scent, that hits you as soon as you open the box. It's not my favourite scent but I appreciate that the bold and distinct scent will surely fill a room. For me, the design on the box and the candle itself, is what makes this gift special.
I actually ended up buying one for ALL my nearest and dearest. Luckily, the letters were displayed in alphabetical order. It's simply a great looking gift, at a great price!
This is not just any candle, it's a Marks and Spencer candle... (sorry, I could not help myself!)
